OUR STORY

Raleigh

(Innkeeper and Historian)

 

Hello and thank you for taking the time to learn about us. I’m so excited for you to come visit and for the opportunity to get to know you better over an afternoon snack or walk around town.

 

The Lindsey Guest House is the culmination of a number of my passions. Not only did I grow up watching episodes of The Gilmore Girls with my mom, but I've always had a passion for making others feel comfortable and welcome. I was born and raised in Florida and later went to school in South Carolina, so I appreciate the value of Southern Hospitality. Also, as a student of history, I’m enjoying learning about the history of the Guest House, Rockland, and Maine.

Owning a guest house was never part of my life’s plan but, then again, neither was meeting Raleigh. You probably won’t see much of me around because I have a day-job that isn’t innkeeping but if you do I hope you’ll say, “Hello.” I spend most of my free time learning how to be handy so that I can work on projects around the inn. You’ll also find me on warm afternoons wandering Rockland’s Harbor Trail.

Woof! I like to stay out of the way of guests for the most part, but you may see me sunbathing in the garden courtyard, watching squirrels. If you do see me, ask Eric or Raleigh for a treat and I’ll love you forever.

Us

We spent a lot of time dreaming and discussing where we’d like to live and found that Maine’s Midcoast region checked all of our boxes. When we first visited Rockland’s sleepy fishing village and saw the Lindsey, we knew it would be a great place to put down roots and grow a business. 

 

Our idea of opening an inn began with a simple hypothesis: people are the key part of the hospitality experience--and we can't wait to meet you!
